Power was shut off on both the Red and Brown lines southbound, and on the Red Line northbound between Sedgwick and Armitage Avenues.

During the power outage, shuttle buses were set up between the Southport and Sedgwick stations on the Brown Line and between Fullerton and North/Clybourn on the Red Line.
